Big fan of yours here and I have really enjoyed reading through all the posts in this folder. I have also purchased a couple of LW barrels and some other parts for my Glocks and have nothing but praise for your business. So when I ran into this problem the first thing I though was, “what did I do wrong”.

I recently purchased the LWD-GRA1923 LW SS Guide Rod Complete Assembly ( and I am having some issues with fit. Rather than go into a lot a lot verbiage here are some pictures that show that it seems to be too long.

Full kit, side by side:

Is there a fix?

Any advice will be appreciated.

You got a G17 recoil system. Unfortunately packaging mistakes happen, sorry. BTW: It will function in your G19, no problem.
Send an email to Anna, our CS rep and she will get you a replacement in the mail Monday morning.

Ah that is an easy fix, I am getting a 17 soon, so I will just keep it and buy another for the 19.

Either way, I appreciate the heads up!
Be sure to let Anna know when you place the order. Tell her JR says you get a free shirt
